I have discovered that ones self esteem is a powerful thing that can build people up or make them tear others down. How one views themselves can inform others about who you are as a person. We have all gone through episodes of low self esteem, situational depression and doubting ourselves. We shouldn’t rely upon others to build us up but reassurance and encouragement can be a help to many.
People who suffer from low self esteem have been known to do things that have harmed others and it could be a cry for help.
There is a old saying you can’t love someone unless you love yourself and its true but some folks are in relationships where self esteem is a work in progress. The one lesson we can learn is to be good to ourselves and be good to others.
